Shocking footage has captured the moment an extreme diver died after diving 65ft into a river, live on TV.

Slovenian Andrej Beuc, 34, was taking part in a diving competition on the River Drina in Bosnia and Herzegovina on Sunday, when he struggled to fully resurface, The Mirror reports.

Cheers from thousands of spectators turned into gasps, as they looked on in horror, as Andrej couldn’t keep his head above the water after his massive dive.

A group of rescue boats were quickly on the scene, but because of the river’s murky water they could not spot the professional athlete in time.

The competition was suspended after the tragic incident unfolded in Zvornik.

Mayor of Zvornik, Zoran Stevanovic, said: “This is an athlete who had thousands of jumps. [The incident has hit] me hard.”
